Professional fishermen work on those ships. Ten motorboats operate in monitoring mode. They do not need any additional aid. Recently released information that PF ships were allegedly involved in the shark search is in contrary to fact”, said representative of the shark-hunting coordination center on Aug 31.Pacific Fleet HQ also confuted this information. “Warships carry out activities of the summer training program. No instructions were received for that matter”, said the PF spokesman.Reportedly, the shark three times attacked people on Aug 17, 18, and 27 off Primorsky Krai south coast. Two residents of Vladivostok of the age of 25 and 16 years old and one 26-year old native of Slavianka suffered from the shark’s teeth. The first two sufferers are in hospital, the third is at home under medical supervision, reports Interfax.[mappress]Source: rusnavy, September 1, 2011; View post tag: Navycenter_img View post tag: News by topic September 1, 2011 View post tag: Naval View post tag: not View post tag: Hunting View post tag: PFlast_img read more

Galileo’s reach

first_imgThere was talk of forgery and corruption in Harvard’s Rosovsky Hall Friday, but it didn’t spark an investigation. Rather, the corruption was of the heavens four centuries ago, while the forgery — of a document purportedly by Galileo — was uncovered in 2005.Scholars, artists, and musicians gathered at Harvard for a wide-ranging conference to mark the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s insights on sunspots.The event, organized by Peter Galison, the Joseph Pellegrino University Professor, aimed to humanize the famed Italian astronomer, considered a father of modern science, and detail the times in which he lived.Sunspots are known today to be extremely violent eruptions on the face of the sun caused by magnetic activity. Though they measure thousands of degrees, the spots are cooler than the surrounding areas. Associated coronal mass ejections can disrupt communications on Earth and intensify aurora activity.At the time of Galileo, however, it was widely assumed that the heavens were perfect, causing a great deal of resistance to the idea that the sun might be blemished.Galileo was a lute player to whom the arts were an important part of life, so the conference incorporated the arts to help explain his work. It featured a dramatic work by graduate students at the American Repertory Theater and a musical performance, “Galileo’s Muse.” Galileo grew up in a musical family — both his father and brother were lute players and composers — and his insights into the acceleration of gravity have been linked to his musical sensibilities.Aside from the role of the arts in Galileo’s life, the broad impact of his work was best reflected by a conference reaching across disciplines, Galison said.The drama, “The Greatest Witness,” was created by grad student Stephanie Dick, who assembled the reading from period poetry, a 1945 play about Galileo, and Galileo’s own writing.Though sunspots were observed before Galileo, he correctly explained what he saw, engaging in an ongoing argument with a Jesuit astronomer, Christoph Scheiner, who believed the spots were small planets passing across the face of the sun, a position that preserved the sun’s perfection.Among other subjects, speakers at the conference provided details of the argument with Scheiner, examined Galileo’s research during the key month of June 1612, and highlighted how the common use of pseudonyms at the time still complicates research.Galileo’s explanation that the spots were actually blemishes on the sun clashed with the Catholic Church’s firmly held belief that the heavens were perfect. These views added to his troubles with church over his insistence that Nicolaus Copernicus was correct: The Earth was not at the center of the universe, but, instead, revolved around the sun.“He went way beyond anything Copernicus imagined,” Galison said. “Galileo went out of his way to say you should take this seriously.”Among the speakers was Nick Wilding of Georgia State University, who in 2005 helped uncover the forgery of a document that had been attributed to Galileo. Wilding said the forgery was very good, but that tiny details — missed by earlier experts who had authenticated the document — gave it away. Wilding said that modern technology has proved an asset to forgers and presents trouble for historians.“We face a crisis as historians, as we deal with sources,” Wilding said. “We’re getting close-to-perfect forgeries.”The event was co-sponsored by the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard, the Italian Consulate-General in Boston, Museo Galileo of Florence, the Office of the Dean of the Division of Arts and Humanities at Harvard, and the Italian engineering firm Trevi Icos, which has worked on several Harvard buildings, including the Fogg Museum, and the Northwest Lab building.last_img read more

SMC to host virtual career fair, encourages students to reach out to employers remotely

first_imgSaint Mary’s Career Crossings Office is hosting its annual career fair Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Adapting to new COVID-19 regulations, this year’s fair has become a virtual event.Stacie Jeffirs, director of the Career Crossings Office, said employers appreciate the background that Saint Mary’s students bring to their interviews.“[Employers] love Saint Mary’s students,” she said. “They are looking for more diversity and women in the workplace and being an all women’s college fits really well into that.”Jeffirs is hopeful the virtual fair will impact students in a positive way. She believes being online eliminates the pressure of interviewing in person.“Usually you show up for the fair and walk up to the employer and pitch yourself, but with virtual, there is no “pitch” per say,” she said. “You submit your resume and they will make their selections.”Being online removes barriers that may have made students hesitant in the past, but students still need to prepare themselves for the fair, Jeffirs said.“I recommend and encourage students to treat that Zoom as a pitch, why you submitted, interests, strengths, how this is an opportunity,” she said.Jeffirs said being virtual does comes with some new obstacles for her office.“[The] biggest challenges are the systems, how to get them up and running,” Jeffirs said. “[The administration] mostly just have to take it step by step and day by day to adjust to tweaks troubleshoot, and a lot of things we’ve experienced [in the past]. Being patient with both the school and the employers is important in order for the program to be successful.”Sophomore education major Emily Stross said the career fair can be a beneficial tool for planning for her future career.“I know it’s early to start looking for jobs, but being ahead of the curve is just something that will help me stand out,” Stross said.Stross is hopeful the connections she made previously during her fieldwork experience will help her land a job early outside school. However, she wants to keep herself open to all future options.“It also is helping me explore my options. I hope to work for a school in Ohio when I graduate, but options change and having these options open to me just make me feel more comfortable for the future.”Jeffirs emphasized students can still make connections to employers after the fair is over.“Some of [the employers] might be scheduling outside hours,” she said. “Submit resumes to the positions they have posted and the employers can link with you after the fair.”Tags: career fair, COVID-19, Saint Mary’s Career Crossings Office, Saint Mary’s Collegelast_img read more

Memphis Star Beverley Knight on Her Surprise Olivier Nomination

first_img Do you feel a sense of community with your fellow nominees? Hell yes! Everybody is already on everyone else’s Twitter saying good luck and there is a real community here in theaterland, which you don’t get at all in the music industry, quite frankly. Tell us the truth: have you been practicing an acceptance speech? To be honest with you, I haven’t because I keep thinking I’m going to jinx it. These women I’m up against are proper, and here I am having come in from the music world: I sing, that’s what I do. Let’s just say that if it were to be my name that they called out, the first 20 seconds of my remarks would be absolute rubbish and then I would settle down and maybe get in the proper and appropriate thank yous. How then did you actually get the news? We finished breakfast and James was looking through his phone and he had gone on to the Oliviers website and he looked at the phone and he looked at me and in the end he just smiled. He read out the headlines and mine was the last name and when he read it out, I went crazy and burst into tears. English soul singer Beverley Knight has been batting a thousand in her stage forays to date. She first appeared on the West End in 2013 as Heather Headley’s replacement in The Bodyguard and is currently an Olivier Award nominee for her roof-raising turn as Felicia in the British premiere of Memphis at the Shaftesbury Theatre; the London version of Broadway’s 2010 Tony-winning musical is up for nine Oliviers in total. The chatty, ever-engaging star spoke with Broadway.com about her newfound love for theater, cornering the American market on stage, and where she was when she got the big news. This is only your second-ever West End gig, and here you are an Olivier nominee! How exciting is that? It’s mad, isn’t it? The day the nominations came out I was on holiday with James [O’Keefe, her husband] and we were sitting at breakfast aware of what time it was back home and James said, “You know, it’s time,” and I said, “I don’t want to know, otherwise I will vomit this breakfast up,” so we made small chitchat about this and that and I was quite clearly antsy and nervous. In other words, you were letting research be your guide as opposed to a fellow performer. I guess I was a bit more bookish about it. What I did to prepare myself was not only get on a plane and go to the city of Memphis, but also read as much as I could about what happened after the Civil War—the Reconstruction era and so on. I wanted to get a sense of Felicia not only as we find her in the show but of her genealogy. But now that we’re up and running, I must get in contact with Montego; she’s just divine. As an Englishwoman from the Midlands, you’ve scooped some great American roles. Any others on the horizon? It’s interesting that the roles that seem to suit someone like me all seem to come from the states, which is a joyous thing because I’ve been trying to perfect an American accent ever since I was a kid [laughs]! You’ve got your Motown the Musical and that could be a lot of fun, and if they ever revive The Wiz, I’m in! And how do you feel about co-star Killian Donnelly, who plays Huey, also getting a nod? I’m praying to every god that exists that Killian walks away with that gong because I just adore the ground he walks on. But I’m so pleased that everyone has been recognized, because this has been such a team effort. It’s feeling now as if our hard work has paid off. It’s interesting that you were in the frame for Memphis in the West End before you ever took over in The Bodyguard. I had got the script for Memphis at the very beginning because the people involved were convinced I would be a good Felicia, which was lovely, so I was sent the script and had a read and I thought it was absolutely magnificent. Then I was on tour with my music when they were talking about the changeover in The Bodyguard and I thought that might be fun to do and because they hadn’t at the time gotten a theater for Memphis, I decided to take a punt on that instead. You are half of a mixed-race marriage—how does the musical’s material hit home for you? James is of Irish descent and proper Irish—dark Irish—as well, and we kept saying to one another with relation to this show that what seems so natural and organic and perfect for us would have been not just anathema but illegal had we lived only half a century ago. Which of your two West End roles has been the greater challenge: Rachel Marron or Felicia? Rachel was tougher to pull out every night from a physical point of view and I would go home just knackered because all the songs in that show are for that one character. With Memphis, the music is spread among the cast but this one has a weighty message with Jim Crow and the civil rights era coming through so that by the end of it emotionally, you’re dead; you put everything into it and then you’re just spent. View Comments How important was it for you to learn what Tony nominee Montego Glover had done with the same role on Broadway? That’s an interesting one. In complete contrast to Killian who was in contact with Chad [Kimball, his Broadway predecessor] the whole time, I tried to have as little as possible to do with what had happened on Broadway only because I didn’t want that to influence the way I was thinking and feeling.last_img read more
